“When you show deep empathy towards others, their defensive energy goes down and positive energy replaces it. That’s when you can get more creative in solving problems.” – Stephen Covey
Empathy is the ability to understand another person’s difficulties and point of view. It is the ability to understand and share the emotions of others. As humans, we all want to be understood by another. We wish to be accepted, valued and heard. Being understood enhances positive feelings in us. Empathy is thus, interactional and mutual. Empathy helps in developing harmonious relationships, reducing stress, and enhancing emotional awareness. It fosters good, pleasurable and positive feelings. It can give you a sense of identity. Being empathetic fosters emotional, physical health and overall well-being of a person. It is the core component in any conflict resolution.
